Douglas Florian

If you happen to be in New York do drop in and see the vibrant work of Douglas Florian at BravinLee Programs March 28 - May 5.  Florian makes meditive abstractions composed of a myriad of surface treatments - washy, scratchy sometimes deliciously thick and other times thin with lots of light and space.

Peter Sharp - in conversation

Peter Sharp is a favourite Australian painter of mine. He is currently having a survey show at Hazelhurst Regional Gallery  in Sydney. Well known for his beautiful exploration of 'place' in the Australian landscape, Peter Sharp employs a variety of media to explore ways to represent the land - moving between the details of small natural objects through to the bigger picture - the grand vista. His work speaks volumes about his personal experience in the landscape.
